Wednesday was Julie's last day here after three months in Casperia. Her externship finally coming to an end. Her flight out was Thursday morning. She came with a small carry on bag and left with 2 large bags, her carryon and a packback. Seems she was determined to take Italy back with her. Finally, after having to give up two large bags of her favorite cookies, we left for the car. I say that because in Casperia, which is a medieval city from 1000 AD, steps are the only way down. Lots and lots and lots of steps. Made it to the car, drove and picked up Paola and Franco as we were going to a train station where we didn't have to climb a bunch more steps to get to the platform, but I didn't know how to get there. Now, putting up with backseat driving is annoying. Driving with two Italians, one speaking english the other italian while arguing amongst themselves and telling me where to go, now that would be a sitcom success. Made the train with just two minutes to spare, got Julie on board with all her bags, a quick hug and she was on her way back to California.
